PollCat-ILB

1. Introduction

 

The PollCat-ILB In-Line Buffer provides up to 8 Megs of battery backed memory for collection and storage of ASCII data received from devices such as PBX systems, bar code readers, test equipment, and etc.. Although the ILB is primarily used for storing call records received from a PBX, it can also be used with any device that sends ASCII data via an RS-232 interface.

Up to 8 Megs of Non-Volatile Memory

The ILB is a substantial improvement over DRAM printer buffers. While DRAM buffers will erase stored data with the slightest power glitch, the ILB provides up to 8 Megs of non­volatile, battery backed memory, and can reliably store data for up to 60 days, even when powered off.

Dual Compression Storage

Space and table compression maximizes storage capacity, more than doubling the number of characters that can be stored in memory.

Modem Mode

The ILB's Modem Mode allows connection to an external high speed modem with full hardware handshaking.

Other Features

The ILB can easily be configured to fit the requirements of a variety of data collection applications. The Single Line Release option allows the ILB to output data in individual lines, or in a continuous stream. Baud rate conversion capability allows the ILB to record data at one speed, while releasing data at another speed.
